I just received this as a cross-post, can anyone help this mare ? I would say we need to be careful in dealing with this so as not to discourage the trainer from placing her in a home.

A trainer at the track has a Tb mare 5 yrs old 15.2+ hd very pretty sound and solid will go to meat, call him and make offer - says he wants $500 but I know he will take less 540-533 -3118

This horse is listed on CANTER.  Trainer wanted her out yesterday but will give her till Friday.  Very nice horse, sweet and calm, probably a very easy keeper.

Diana, do you have pics we can post on the thread?  Wasn't sure about using the Canter shots.

Who is this mare's breeder?

hmm, looked up the breeder- he is on the board of the HBPA and has a reasonably good sized farm nearby.  I think the most ideal situation is for this horse to go to a private buyer... let me find out a little more about the breeder though, perhaps it would be worth bringing to his attention.

I hear you.  If the breeder has no interest in giving this horse a permanent home, was thinking maybe the breeder could at least hold the mare at his/her place for a bit if no permanent spot for her was found by Friday - to give everyone more time to find her a home.
